Is it possible to override global settings?

Setting global limits for Exchange is OK, but I have a number of users who need to send/receive larger attachments. How do I override the global settings? I've changed settings under AD exchange functions, but it appears hit and miss if it has any effect. OS is Win2k in mixed mode and Exchange 2000.

Global settings can be overridden at the user level. If you launch Active Directory Users and Computers and then open the Properties of an Exchange user, you'll see an Exchange General tab. On this tab are some options (delivery options and storage options) that can be used to override global settings.
